Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Depot Street lyrics

Written by: Tom Petty

I live on the West side
By the county reservoir
And she lives down on Depot Street
Behind the city hall, behind the city hall
Her father's name is Macintosh
Her mother's name is Pearl
And they live down on Depot Street
But she's my little girl
She's my little girl

Down on Depot Street
Goin' to see my baby
Depot Street
To see my girl
Depot Street
Baby, baby, baby
Depot Street
Behind the city hall

Now we ain't got no money
We don't have no car
We stepped out on Depot Street
Just dancin' in the bars, dancin' in the bars
And her sister doesn't like me
But I don't really care
I know the only reason is
She wants me for herself
She wants me for herself

Down on Depot Street
Goin' to see my baby
Depot Street
To see my girl
Depot Street
Baby, baby, baby
Depot Street
Behind the city hall

Now we ain't been to college
We don't care at all
There's way too many people there
Makin' way too many rules
Way too many rules
So we got no education
But we don't care at all
'Cause it don't mean much on Depot Street
Behind the city hall
Behind the city hall

Down on Depot Street
Goin' to see my baby
Depot Street
To see my girl
Depot Street
Baby, baby, baby
Depot Street
Behind the city hall

Down on Depot Street
Goin' to see my baby
Depot Street
To see my girl
Depot Street
Baby, baby, baby
Depot Street
